I am from Northern Virginia and have visited Harper's Ferry and the surrounding area with my parents and siblings since I can remember; for hunting, fishing, boy scout camps, folk tours, etc. Tom and Marsha, the curators at this quaint little museum, have one of the best collections of historical documents, books, pictures, and relics in the region. They are extremely friendly and more than willing to discuss any of the pieces they have in their museum with visitors. The location is great (right on KOA property) and the additional entertainment they provide -- bluegrass bands and antique, time-period gun showings -- make this a must see for any tourists to Harper's Ferry National Historical Park, especially families. Highly recommended.
